We started off keeping it a secret & then I stopped caring who knew. It feels much better to just talk about it. When people would ask about the legalities of the wedding I'd skirt around the topic. I finally just started to say we are taking care of the paperwork before we go. I thought we'd get some negative responses but it's all been positive. now I wonder why I was ever worried about it in the first place.
We are doing it before. I want to be full on married after our ceremony. Also, we have to show the certificate to do the symbolic ceremony which saves us $1,000.
Honestly I can't imagine anything could take away from how excited I am about our wedding day & how special I feel like it will be.
